Initially I was very pleased with the brass chute brass catcher, however the more I used it the more disappointed I became with the netting support arm durability. After using the chute on a few breezy days (just enough to billow the netting, not blow it over) the vertical support arms loosened considerably where the "pop out catch pins" locked into the support arm brackets. Because of the "looseness" the support arms and netting sagged substantially.
To help alleviate the issue, I drilled holes in the support arm brackets and now when deploying the brass catcher I insert pins to keep the netting support arms fully extended. It adds a bit to setup time but nothing unbearable.
The concept is great, the portability is great, the netting material is durable, the size is reasonably efficient, but the frame "sturdiness" leaves a lot to be desired.
I shoot at a number of different pistol events at clubs that do not use any method of catching brass and the organizers of those events really appreciate when I set up my brass chute. A few have since purchased their own.
The pop out buttons make it faster to set up, I get it. But if they used pins to lock the the vertical support arms back in position it would be a home run.
